A panel discussion at SECURITY 500

“As someone who recently transitioned from the aerospace sector to the energy industry, the SECURITY 500 Conference has proven to be an invaluable event for me as a security practitioner. The conference’s dynamic platform has not only allowed me to grow my network, but has also significantly expanded my knowledge of crosscutting security issues. The conference consistently delivers expert insights, practical strategies and networking opportunities that have directly contributed to my growth in the field. I highly recommend the conference to fellow CSOs and other senior security leaders looking to stay informed and connected within the industry.”

What you'll hear about at the SECURITY 500 Conference

Each year this one-day conference delivers subjects that are top-of-mind security leaders including news affecting security leadership, management, cybersecurity, risk management, logical security, physical security and the relationship between the private and public sectors.

“Outside of the obvious networking amongst peers who you may not otherwise cross paths with, the SECURITY 500 Conference is value-added for participants to hear real-life and down to earth insight from people just like them. It’s always refreshing to know that you’re not alone in a challenge, and the SECURITY 500 Conference affords participants the opportunity to get down to brass tacks and just talk about work-related challenges, or at least commiserate. The environment is relaxed and not stuffy; it’s not so big that you have to drop a pin to have someone find you and yet the participants are broad enough that you get to mingle, learn, laugh and grow.”

“The SECURITY 500 Conference brings together smart, talented and insightful leaders with a variety of government, corporate and nonprofit security experience. The curated attendee list, for instance, had thought leaders from a social change organization, a multi-national beverage company, and a tech company all sitting at my table. I had not met them previously, but was sure to get connected after the SECURITY 500 Conference. Multiply this and the takeaways from the panel discussions.”
